    Also, compare & contrast:-

    CR 54:197-207 (2012) “Climate change could cause massive losses in Pyrenees ski resorts

    An increase in temperatures due to climate change could mean that the Andorran ski resorts have a shorter season in the future, especially in lower areas. A study undertaken by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the Andorran Sustainability Observatory has analysed the specific case of the Pyrenean country and predicted that financial losses could come close to 50 million euros.”

    And, today’s Torygraph:-

    “Andorra:
    The reliability of Andorra’s snow this season continues to impress – and there is another 30cm predicted over the next seven days. Pal in the Vallnord domain has a base of 110cm on lower slopes and 150cm on upper slopes, which rise to 2350m. Skiing on piste is on packed powder snow.”

    So did the Russians, at Sochi. Nice cities to vacation in tend not to be above the snow line long enough.
